Artist Research – CPS
Andy Goldsworthy is a photographer and sculptor (land artist). He uses the nature around him to create aesthetically pleasing artworks that exsaggerates the beauty of the environment he is in.
When making his art, Andy Goldsworthy makes sure to use natural materials. Then he photographs the work piece. He is also interested within the decay and death of his piece and the natural materials he used as they start to fade away into the land it once grow from.
Andy Goldsworthy is one of my favourite artist due to what materials he uses and how he uses them. But also how he also had the interest of how nature takes back the artwork he has made.
Studio Space (start of true cps post)
Andy Goldsworthy studio space, Due to him working with the nature that he finds when he is out, is the environment he is in.
Goldsworthy respects his studio space as it is the land we live on. It is a calms and tranquil place, where you can just feel the art he is working on. Although sometimes it isn’t a quite as you would think. Some of his work has been on beaches and public land. This has involves people having to move around his work. As annoying as this might sounds it can also be seen as the people are now part of the artwork.
He used all the materials he can find when he is out. He uses leaves for colours and sticks as lines, he has so specialists materials but he uses very specialist techniques to make the art.
The photo below is supposedly his studio, This studio gives a very nature feeling due to how it looks like an abounded look. the way in which I would say he uses his studio is he makes the art and lets it be around him while making other art. this gives a good way of getting inspiration and understand. This and the look of the studio to me gives it a more homely, comforting and inviting look/feel.
